BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Since NBC passed on David E. Kelley’s planned Wonder Woman revival in May, we’ve been treated — or subjected, depending on your perspective — to glimpses of what might’ve been. A title card here, a 30-second sequence there. But now, just in time for Comic-Con International, someone has uploaded more than five and a half minutes of footage from the rejected pilot that may shed some light on the network’s decision to walk away.
Before you rush to judgment on the production quality, keep in mind this is rough footage that still required clean-up and special effects. Still, though, Wonder Woman fans will likely be relieved they dodged this bullet.
